(Sorry If this is the wrong section, I thought about General SF4, but that was all character Strategies. Please move is needed.) Sorry ahead of time for the long novel, but I did use Puncuation and paragraphs .
Hello, I recently went online for SF4 on the ps3 and had my first match. Now I am no pro or anything, far from it actually. But When I played my first match and after losing horribly (He still had probably 75_85% of his health left after both rounds.) I got a mail from the guy saying how I was cheap for for doing a jump kick into a grab. Saying that if I needed to resort to that that I don’t belong online (I cleaned it up as it was a lot of caps, language and the learn to play repertoire.) So I sent him a message saying it was my first game and that I didn’t know things like that was consider unsportsmanlike.
So I went to play him again and didn’t do that again, I lost the first match again with about the same result. Then during the second round, we were fighting and he stopped moving (I found it odd that I was getting so lucky with my hits.) So I noticed he wasn’t moving or anything, so I backed off and waited (Thinking he might be having lag or other issues, I’m not going to hit a lagging or afk guy.) Then he starts moving again and proceeded to fight and he won. I did grab him once or twice during our two rounds.
I get another message saying that I am just trying to piss him off and the usual language and learn to play. I send him a message that I didn’t do any of the cheap stuff he told me about and just walked up and grabbed him. He then replies that I am a bastard because I walked up to him and grabbed him. He said “Was I open, No. Are you a Grappler, No. Stop sending messages to me and I’m reporting you.” I sent him 4 messages that were calm and thought out. He sent 6 that were, well… I’'m sure you all know.
By the way I was playing Cammy and him Guile. So my questions are:
- Is it wrong to use grabs if your not a grappler?
- What is considered cheap to do online?
- Is there a list of don’t do’s as certain characters.
- Is everyone like that now or are there still level headed people online.
